like. but it's a very elementary city description because he's 6 years old. >> julia, you are -- have you a different story. you're in the middle school here in town. you went into lockdown right away as soon as this happened. >> yes. >> did you know what was happening? everybody has cell phones and might have been text messages, did you know what was going on? >> no clue what was going on until the first hour. one of the my teachers said there was a shooting a mile down the road. >> do you have a classmate who had a little brother at the school? >> yes. the boy who i was sitting right next to during the lockdown, his little brother ended up dying. >> how did he find that out? >> i'm not exactly sure. i haven't talked to him yet today, during the lockdown, he didn't say anything. i didn't even know he had a little brother at sandy hook school until i just found out his brother had died. >> he hadn't been concerned at the time about finding out the fate of his little brother while he was in lockdown in your classroom? >> it didn't seem like it, no. >> bobby, you were in another school
. on this street earlier today were hoboken city police, jersey city police. there were bomb squad representatives, although they did not go in to the apartment building. also the fbi had a presence here. the fbi did remove materials from this apartment including, we believe, some kind of computer. there are questions about why the brother was taken in to custody at all, especially in handcuffs. one police officer on the scene did tell me that there apparently was some confusion that the brother's i.d. may have been found on the shooter's body in connecticut. that is one police officer who told me that. we are not sure at this time if ryan lanza is still in custody. again, he's the brother of the apparent shooting suspect who was dead and also the son of a woman who was killed today. >> all right. john berman reporting from hoboken. to add to that, the lanza's father was questioned by police. they are not suspects but have been questioned for any kind of information they can lend to this. i mentioned before it is not often you see a president in tears but it wasn't but a few hours this news hit th
. >> was there a reason for that. it's typical in big cities, but communities that are rural, it's a little bit of a rarity. >> it's just the safety of our children is taken very seriously. it's a fairly large school between 500 and 600 students there. they want to keep control and know who is in the building with our children. >> i was talking to the state police and they said that they were processing the scene and children were still inside. how do you explain to their son whap about his classmate? >> we are a fairly religious family and we just talked about that they have gone to heaven. to be with jesus and that's about all we can say. we talk about you are not going to see them anymore and they are not going to be around. you really just struggle to find the words. >> you should know everyone is seng well wishes not just to you, but your community as a whole. so many people asked me to pass that along. >> we are a strong community. it is strong family community with a lot of love. we will get through it somehow, some way. >> let's go back to anderson. >> thank you very much. more now on s
, obviously, any may mayor, particularly in new york city, are thinking about a city lock. we talked about this being a 9/11 situation. it's a chilling phrase, the way we responded to 9/11 having been long-term productive in terms of our resources and in terms of security. my question is to you, how do you you think about making policy in the aftermath of this, that doesn't fall prey, to making those kinds of mistakes? >> well, there be obviously, instances in which governments overreact, or react incorrectly in the wake, in the immediate wake of a national tragedy. and i think it is incumbent upon chief executives, members of the ll legislature to think thoughtfully, to take a deep breath, and gather the facts before rushing forward with a solution or another. i will say, though, with regard to these kinds of shootings and gun violence. i don't think that's our problem. >> right. i think in some respects, we have the opposite problem, when these incidents occur, you hear these voices, as you said, now's not the time to talk about what we do about this. or we don't went to politicize the t

was at the oklahoma city bombing where another american killed scores of people. larry pratt, do you think the shooting yesterday was a game changer? guest: if it results in a ban on guns in schools, that will be the case. that was my opinion when i heard about this tour -- this horrific death toll. we have to get past the idea that we are saved by being disarmed. that is not a plan. host: larry pratt is the executive director of gun owners of america. thank you for being on the program this morning. back to the phones and our discussions regarding the school shooting in newtown, connecticut. our next call comes from eunice in east pittsburgh, pennsylvania. caller: thanks for taking my call. we need more security in our schools. when it comes to guns, we have people who come into lower class neighborhoods giving our young children guns for a few dollars or no dollars whatsoever, just giving guns to our people so they can shoot one another. it does need to stop. if that can be taken care of, that would be helpful as far as our young children. that is all i have to say. i am very sorry about

from new york city. and up here, they go to the mother's house, where they found her body. and this is where they believe it all started with her murder. of course, their big focus is on the school itself. let's move over there and take a look. because authorities believe that after killing his mother, whether immediately, or after a period of time, we don't know, that the gunman went over to the school and there, he had these weapons in his car or some version of these weapons. and he began to move in on the school itself. we had a better picture, a close are timeline looking at radio reports and other eyewitness accounts. 9:30 in the morning is when we believed he would have actually approached the school itself, leaving, we think, this car over here. they put a lot of focus on it. and even if it were this car, he would have come this way, up to these front doors. and earlier it was mentioned this new security system, that prevented the first barrier to him. because it was locked at a time. and there was a report late on from authorities that said the glass had been brok
